Artist Statement

A collection of paintings and drawings by Artist, former gallerist and Archibald Finalist.

“It’s a delight to be invited to exhibit paintings in the heart of Chapel Street, South Yarra. I’ve selected works from three recent shows that I’m hoping the upbeat fashion-conscious beau monde will enjoy.

The three shows included: Beatitude (works of botanical theme), Digital Vs Analogue (abstract works of line and colour), and Woman (figurative paintings and drawings).

The works themselves are in sync with contemporary culture and architecture. My approach has always been stripping away layers of tedious scenery and presenting unvarnished uncomplicated images – sophistication in simplicity. Having owned a gallery in Richmond in the past, I’m right at home with big white spatial walls and square set ceilings of modern homes in this precinct. This exhibition is a chance to come back to familiar territory. Big, blank, well-lit, rooms are front and center of my mind when I put brushes to canvas. I simply try to paint something interesting and beautiful to adorn them with. It’s probably a conceited vanity I cherish, to have everyone stare at a big painting of mine amongst their swoosh décor.. At the same time, I hate putting my signature on my work and to be honest, the joy is purely in giving others pleasure. I wish everyone gets some pleasure seeing the works. They are charged with positivity.

My expressed thanks to Adam and Malin for their encouragement and assistance in making this happen.”

– Camillo De Luca
